ConJose Committee Discharged

Press Release 2005-2

For immediate release: September 25, 2005

ConJose Committee Discharged

At their meeting on Saturday, September 17,
2005, the board of directors of San Francisco
Science Fiction Conventions, Inc. (SFSFC) voted
to discharge the ConJose Asset Management
Committee, dissolving the final administrative
remnant of the 2002 Worldcon Committee.

The World Science Fiction Society (WSFS)
requires that Worldcon committees file annual
reports on their income and expenses until any
surplus generated by that Worldcon is disbursed.
ConJose filed its Final Report with WSFS at the
2005 WSFS Business Meeting at Interaction, the
2005 Worldcon in Glasgow. With no further
responsibilities to WSFS, the committee had no
further functions to perform, and SFSFC
dissolved it.

A copy of ConJose's Final Report to WSFS, as
well as its 2004 and 2003 reports, is available
on the corporation's web site:

With the ConJose Committee now dissolved, any
further responsibility for any issues related to
the 2002 Worldcon is now directly managed by
SFSFC. Any questions about ConJose should be
directed to the corporation at

The ConJose Asset Management Committee was a
successor to the 2002 Worldcon Operating
Committee that managed ConJose under the
direction of SFSFC. After most of ConJose's
responsibilities were complete, SFSFC dissolved
the larger Worldcon Operating Committee and
appointed Cindy Scott, Kevin Standlee, and Tom
Whitmore as a ConJose Asset Management
Committee. The CJAM Committee was responsible
for managing the residual WSFS-related
responsibilities and remaining assets of the
ConJose Committee.

SFSFC's action on September 17 closes the loop
on the 2002 Worldcon, whose history can be
traced to the formation in July 1996 of a
Worldcon Bidding Committee that originally bid
for San Francisco, then switched to San Jose
when the San Francisco facilities were
unavailable. After being selected to host the
2002 Worldcon at Aussiecon Three in 1999, the
bid committee handed over the convention to an
Operating Committee that actually ran the

Including all three management committees, the
2002 Worldcon spanned nine years and two months,
from July 1996 to September 2005.

SFSFC is the parent non-profit corporation of
ConJose, the 2002 World Science Fiction
Convention, and ConFrancisco, the 1993 Worldcon.
